Baylor has terminated the employment of associate director of football operations DeMarkco Butler on Monday, according to Baylor football spokesperson David Kaye.
“DeMarkco Butler is no longer employed by Baylor University,” Kaye wrote in an email to the Lariat. “As a personnel matter, we have no further comment.”
A school official said Butler was released following an incident involving inappropriate text messages with a teenager, KWTX reported. The official indicated the individual is considered an adult under Texas statute, KWTX reported.
Butler was hired on Feb. 15 by new head football coach Matt Rhule, according to USA Today Sports.
Butler is the second football official hired under Rhule to have been fired this year. Strength coach Brandon Washington was fired following an arrest in February over a prostitution sting.
Butler previously held the position of director of football operations at Western Illinois University following a college football career at Monmouth College, according to USA Today Sports.
